It swings. It grooves. Think of Herbie Hancock circa the Scatterbrain - Jeff Beck - Blow By Blow (CD Thrust comes to mind. The tunes are well-written instrumentals. The drummer is excellent, and while not a virtuoso, the bassist plays crisp and tasteful lines.
I also love the tone he gets sounds like a Fender Precision bass. It provides a nice backdrop. His playing alternately burns and is bittersweet, bordering on lachrymose. The moods on this album range from upbeat and playful to wistful. There really is something for everyone here. In fact, I would recommend this album to people who are not fans of jazz rock. The production quality is excellent thank you Sir George Martin.
There is also pretty good separation of instruments although sometimes the keyboards get buried. Also, the bass can get a bit loud here and there but not too often. The drums sound spectacular though!
All in all, this is one of the finest albums by Jeff Beck and one of the friendliest jazz rock albums I own. For those of you that want the volume turned up a bit on the jazz rock, you might enjoy the follow-up album Wired This music to me still sounds fresh and exciting. The quality of the recordings, arrangements and guitar playing is first class. This album was produced by the late great George Martin and includes songs composed by Stevie Wonder. Jeff Beck is such an innovative guitarist full of creativity and skills.
I recommend every song on this album as all of them take you on a journey. It would be a great album to lay back to and listen to with your eyes closed and let it take your mind into the far reaches of the universe.
Or even to listen to it on a long drive. I highly recommend it. Scatterbrain - Jeff Beck - Blow By Blow (CD person found this helpful. Mostly, I enjoy instrumental music. At home, I play it often while going about my business, as well as just to listen. For this reason my taste and purchases usually are jazz and classical.
It reminded me that Mr. Beck is a fine musician whose songs are usually sans vocals. So, I purchased 'Blow By Blow. What Beck does with a guitar is indescribable. What sounds! Since, I've purchased several other Beck offerings. You can't make a mistake. Try one. Try all! An essential set of instrumental JB.
Jeff seems to reinvent himself as a guitarist and this is the album where he starts the reinvention. Highly recommended. Jeff Best. Jeff Beck is a talented guitarist who has been in the business since the 60's. The album "Truth" is considered a landmark late 60's power-blues record that rivals Led Zeppelin's debut album on some levels.
But, Beck's career has been a hallmark of flash over substance with one notable exception; "Blow by Blow". Under George Martin's production guidance Beck keeps things tight and nothing gets out of hand or overblown like on most of his records. Despite being 35 years old, this record especially the remastered version is still highly listenable. The keyboard player is Max Middleton and his electric piano runs are featured almost as prominently as Beck's guitar and that surely helps to create a balanced sound as compared to many of the over-indulgent guitar domination found on the majority of his work.
This is a jazz-rock fusion record from the mid's and has a feel shared but other fusion artist of the time Weather Report for example but this is highly enjoyable stuff. Beck's guitar work is excellent and each track flows right to the next one literally. If you only own one Jeff Beck, jazz-rock, instrumental record; this is the best by far. This album was a pleasant surprise and I am glad that I bought it.
